personalisation

Article that asks why bureaucracy is derailing personalisation and what can be done to rescue the policy.

Paper that shows how the personalisation agenda encourages innovation, offering the potential to create new markets around localised and individual needs, to focus fiscal resources directly and discretely, and to enable small groups of individuals to ‘positively disrupt’ a complex and opaque system.

It begins with a potted history of personalisation, and ends with five recommendations for the implementation of personalisation, whatever the sector, in a way that increases the availability and use of new, community­based approaches to support and inclusion.

Discussion paper on why the underpinning notion of self directed support seems to have failed in its ambitions. It also looks at how the concepts of personalisation and personal budgets associated with self-directed support may retain value if interpreted in an appropriate way, delivered through an appropriate strategy.

Shared values and principles that should govern approaches to integration and the way new structures are built that will empower citizens of Scotland and unlock them from the failing of past systems, rather than locking them into a new system that lacks a clear vision.
